The rerun of the Betamax-VHS battle that is HD DVD versus Blu-ray looks to have swung in Sony’s favour – unlike the first time round. Woolworths has decided its shops will only sell film DVD in Sony’s Blu-ray format, after sales figures showed that it outsold Toshiba’s HD-DVD by ten to one over Christmas.
And that £20 HD DVD player looked like such good value, too. Ah well – you know when you’ve been Betamaxed!
